Scaling a surface model, v5

Hi guys, we are making a hydrogen car prototype, the catia guy has left us and I was stuck with doing the model. Knowing almost nothing of the catia, I managed to draw the whole body surface with sketch tracer. The problem is my drawing is out of scale and I cant fit it to my existing parts. I need a way to rescale a surface drawn by sketch tracer.

Any help will be huge! thanks

I've never used the Sketch Tracer, so I'll assume you have a regular sketch that's the wrong scale. Try this:

Open the sketch, and select all the geometry that is the wrong scale.

In the top menu: INSERT + OPERATION + TRANSFORMATION + SCALE

In the pop-up window, make sure DUPLICATE is turned off

select a reference point

click in the panel and type-in the Scale Value (>1 to make the geometry bigger, <1 to make it smaller).

That should scale your sketch.

If you already created a surface with the sketch, there is a similar Scaling Transformation in the 3D workbench
